Aubameyang Closes In On Bundesliga Scoring Record

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Closes In On Bundesliga Scoring Record

By David Kappel - Sep 29, 2017 09:00 PM @kappilinho

Borussia Dortmund superstar Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has begun the season on fire and is close to breaking an impressive goalscoring record in the Bundesliga.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see Africa's top goalscorers in Bundesliga history, according to Transfermarkt.

The Gabon striker has already scored eight goals in just six league games in 2017/18 so far, and is closing in on becoming the league's top African goalscorer of all time.

Overall, Aubameyang sits on 93 strikes in 134 games for BVB, which means he only needs three more to draw level with record African scorer Anthony Yeboah.

The Ghana legend netted 96 goals in 223 matches for Eintracht Frankfurt and Hamburg, and is currently the Bundesliga's all-time African record scorer.

Aubameyang's tally, though, is still far from the league’s best foreign player in history, with former Bayern Munich, Werder Bremen and Peru striker Claudio Pizarro having scored 191 goals in 430 games.

However, the 2015 CAF African Player of the Year only needs seven more goals to join an illustrious club of only six foreign players to have scored more than 100 Bundesliga goals.

The 28-year-old, who has netted 13 goals in 10 games in all competitions already this season, can add to his tally when Dortmund travel to Augsburg on Saturday.

That's "res ipsa loquitur". He netted 94 in just 134 appearances, if he continue like this for further 134 games scoring 94+ he will be at 188 strikes in 268 matches, great form, he is one of best African stars in Bundes Liga
